I take boron a couple of times a week in a 0 capsule which is 3/4 full. Within just a few days my nails are long and strong. I also use it instead of K2 to keep calcium in check. Borax is amazing. Look at the NIH website for more information.

Well, Borax has many other benefits than just arthritis, so in order to get those benefits, I take it continuously on weekdays.

Hi Art,

Wondering how much borox do you take during the weekdays? I have just started taking two teaspoonfuls/day, of a two cup water/ 1/2 rounded teaspoonful borax solution, in water (also five day/ week) which I believe is about 18 mg/day. I plan to reduce it after a while.

By the way, I have found the preservative free aloe vera juice you suggested to be very beneficial for the lichen planus! It gives almost immediate relief. It wears off but you can take it as needed. I have finally made an appointment with a Chinese medicine doctor in August for six appointments, twice/week for three weeks, which is what he requires. Have been thinking about it for years and finally decided to call. Will post any results after trying this.

Thanks for all your helpful posts and links, as usual!

I take the 1/4 teaspoon of Borax in a quart of water per each day of the week with weekends off. I tried going down to the 1/8th teaspoon dosing, but that was not fully effective for me.

Glad to hear that the aloe was helpful for the LP! I hope you have great results with your TCM experiment!

Greetings, Earth Clinic. I have been taking the prescribed dose 1/4 teaspoon of Borax with 1litre of water now jst over three months with 5days on 2days off an have been religiously doing so. I have Advanced Osteoarthritis an have been a sufferer over 15yrs now I was 1st diagnosed 2003 at the age of 34. I have tried almost everything to help my condition over the years to no avail, an with 1 Hip Replacement in 2005.........2014 it's hit me again with my opposite hip, but I refuse to have a 2nd operation (Hip replacement).

I saw a Natreopath 6yrs ago who put me on a non dairy diet an to drink 2 cups of Clove Tea a day, I was to rub Tincture O Iodine on the bottoms ofmy feet an Drink plenty of Goats Milk, which is very expensive to buy now at $7.50 per litre, pain subsided to 55% now consuming dairy products again, but a small amount. Thus coming across Borax, the 1st cup I drunk within an hour my pain level reduced to 75% I couldn't believe it, I was in "disbelief" 5days later my Energy level increased 65% pain level at 40% 2 months later 90% painfree an 90% Energy.

I had weaned myself off all pharmaceuticals (Dyclothanac an Paracetamol) 2 weeks before starting the Borax course. I started to do light stretches to exercise my hip.

At 2months I've been 100% painfree an limping every 10 steps as appose to every step. I was feeling Brand New, it was a Miracle. A cold snap hit our Township, my pain come back niggling at 30% just whn I was feeling better.......Myself still taking the prescribed dose. My pains increased to 60% I put it down to the cold.......3months and Two weeks later my joints seem to be stiffening.

I've jst moved house, doing everything myself, with heavy lifting. My pain has increased to 90% I've been resting the past 2days yet feel almost like a Jellyfish........aching all over......I feel like I'm at S.O.S level.........I

s the Borax still working? I feel like my bones are weakening, an all my joints ache now at 90% an feel like the flesh wants to melt off my skeleton........I know you've said sip the Borax throughout the day but I've been drinking my 1litre within 2hours, is it possibly contributing to my decline? Bigger picture I know besides drinking Clove Tea, Borax has been the only other substance that I know of to be helping my Body........I have moved to a house which has no insulation an can feel the cold.......could this be another factor.........Yr Feedback would be Mostly Appreciated...........Regards

Aaron. Some thoughts on your dilemma.

Borax does solve your pain. Yet you possibly need more minerals. Our systems run on minerals, once depleted must be rebuilt.

Magnesium is the first and foremost depleted mineral. It is used by every inch of your body and due to soil depletion and poor farming practices worldwide, it is prudent to supplement this.

I suspect when you moved it may have gobbled up that critical mineral. Magnesium citrate for a constipated type, magnesium malate for a runny stool type, minimum 250mg 2x a day. Or you can buy magnesium flakes. Make magnesium oil. Take by drops 5 to 8 drops in water 2x a day.

Magnesium oil can be used topically. Rubbing into skin where the pain is.

This can sting when levels are low. To stop stinging. Add water to site. Add more mag oil. Put a layer of castor oil or lotion on first.

To up your minerals internally. Take 1/4 tsp of sea salt in water in the am. This gives you a full spectrum of all the trace minerals to up all of your levels. Do not use table salt. Only sea salt in food.

I make hyaluronic acid for our family. You can maybe buy capsules where you live. Open 10 capsules in 5 or 6 oz of spring water in a blender add 1/8 tsp of salt blend 10 to 15 seconds. Put a hanky banded on a clean jar strain liquid through the hanky to remove residue from capsules, take a tbsp or 2 3x a day. Rub into joints. This puts the fluid back in joints that makes them operate smoothly. Keep jar in frig. This spoils and you must remake every 2 or 3 days. Or take 2 or 300mg capsules 3x a day

I highly recommend bulletproof coffee for collagen. 1 cup of brewed coffee in blender, add 1 scoop of collagen, add 1 or 2 tbsp of real butter blend 10 seconds, drink.

My bath recipe or foot soak at 1/2 the ingredients. 2 cups epsom salts, 1 cup of borax, 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide, soak 20 minutes, often as you can. This enriches the body with mag sulfate and boron through your skin. The peroxide oxygenates the body.

To control some pain much like aspirin and improve digestion, alkalize the body. Improve sleep. 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar in a glass, add 1/2 tsp of sodium bicarbonate, baking soda, let fizz, add 1/2 glass of water. Drink 2x a day 1/2 hour after food. 5 days out of 7.

These should correct your joints so you get rid of the pain.

To kill a virus that is often the cause of arthritis to begin with. Look up in Earth Clinics search box, ted bangkok arthritis. It will take you to his chapter of cures. You can try his virus killing formula. To eradicate this from your body.

I think Janet's comments about the minerals is important. I did also wonder about the cold snap comment and wondered if you had considered the possibility of increases in mold and mildew that might have occurred in the home you live in. From my personal experience, I had been doing better on boron but about a month ago started drinking fermented kefir juices because I thought they were healthy, the boron didn't seem to be working so well. I have always had trouble with alcohol and know that it just does not agree with me. My son alerted me that with the fermentation I was actually making alcohol even though it is a small amount. Removing this from my diet I seem to be doing better again. It's possible that the alcohol was causing my body to use up the boron faster, essentially neutralising the benefits. Likewise, I wonder if you may have unknowingly been exposed to increases in mold in your home during the cold snap, the borax could be being depleted trying to deal with possible increases in mold. Boron appears to kill yeast but conversely, I would think yeasts and mold could deplete boron reserves. Just my thoughts as a possibility, don't know if applies in your situation.

I deplore honeymoon reviews. I've waited nearly 10 years to chime in! Sorry bout that.. At age 40 osteo-arthritis was setting in and was worst in my toes (two surgeries) back (car accident) as well as what we expect as "normal" in a couple of my digits. I started to get relief from the 1/8th-1/4 teaspoon Borax protocol within a month. After 6 months my pain in latter areas was reduced by more than 80% and remains so 10 years post.

Hi I believe Ted recomends 1/8 of a teaspoon to 1 liter of water of borox 20 mule team the natural laundry detergent but not every day. I am not sure how many times a week. I think may be 2 or 3 times a week He believes it works much much quicker then the supplement form for osteo arthritis. I think it has an effect in about a weeks time. I take it sometimes and it does no harm to me. I do not have arthritis so I cannot give feedback regarding it. Check out how he says to use it on the the cures for osteo arthritis on this website.

Yes - my thoughts are that since the worms are exiting, your borax concoction must be making it unpleasant for the worms and I'd keep it up until no more worms.

There is a worm called Strongloides stercorales that infests us humans that is commonly called string or thread worm, but the only ones I've seen were from urine that I was looking at under a microscope. Several of us in a little small town I was living in at that time suddenly got heavily infested with them after the municipal water supply churned up the water (looked like a combination of mud & rust) to clean out the water lines. The man at the health department I delivered one to for indentification told me was either strongloides or tape worm. When asked which he would rather have, his reply was the tape worm because it had to exit the body to reproduce and Strongloides didn't.

Yes. American mainstream meat is loaded with worms. Pests do not like the alkaline environment.

Eat organic, and you must go with long-term suppliers who show you the source and method and condition of raising and slaughter. The generic organics are put out by the industrial manufacturing; QAI is bribed, and the price is specifically designed to undercut authentic Organic Providers; putting them out of business.

I buy clear plastic gallons of spring water. After reading Ted's explanation of sea salt being alkaline, I remembered that this is the water cure as shared by Dr. Batamanghelidj. (See watercure.com) So to a gallon of water I add one teaspoon of unrefined sea salt, several pinches of baking soda, and 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of borax. I drink this while at my job 5 days per week. At home I drink the same mix without the borax.

This past week, there was something I noticed under my arm. A tick. I did not want to pull it out but it died and fell off in less than two days. I think it's due to the borax which I think is amazing. A tick is a parasite.

I've also been drinking ACV with molasses and mix the ACV with baking soda until it stops fizzing. I'm glad I found this site.

Mimosa Pudica seed is very good at removing parasites from the intestinal tract. I would combine this with a clove, black walnut hull, and wormwood tincture. Take cascara sagrada if you experience any constipation. Take diatomaceous earth internally after meals. Take bentonite clay and activated charcoal away from other supplements to bind any toxins released from the parasites. It wouldn't hurt to also take a drug like fenbenzadole. Mimosa Pudica seed is key though. I would take these things for a few months.


Pineal Gland Decalcification

I am 5'8, " 220 lbs., 38 years, female, and I take a teaspoon of organic nutmeg powder once a day in a glass of milk every few days. I have been using it this way for five years. Sometimes I add a teaspoon of ground cloves. The organic nutmeg sold in a little glass bottle by a big herb company isn't nearly as effective as the organic powder sold in a bulk jar at the same store. Groung fresh is even better. The effects are decreased pain, improved mood, relaxation, better sleep, and dry mouth. I took a larger dose a while back and the next morning was very dehydrated and dizzy. Fresh citrus juice, I have found, is the very best remedy for the dehydration. You must try it! I like nutmeg combined with valerian, kava kava, and/or green tea. Very recreational. Nutmeg also makes any food eaten afterward taste amazing.

I read an article that warned people about the dangers of using nutmeg to get high. It seemed dishonest in light of my own experience with nutmeg. It said users would experience some small high, but it would be overshadowed by extreme nausea. That has not been my experience at all. I have experienced nausea once from it, I had taken it with an expectorant containing lemon myrtle and eucalyptus oils, and a herbal guanfenison - contradictory herbs.

I have plantar tumors in my insteps of both feet. They did fill the hollow of my foot until I started taking Borax orally a few months ago.

I had been taking pics of my feet off and on to see where they were at growth wise. I have already had elimination of pain and can now see the reduction in the size of the tumors. They get soft first then they sort of just melt away. I'm over 2 years into the growth of the tumors so I suspect it could take 3-6 yrs to get rid of them.

No skin off my back now that I'm not in pain!!

Dear Earth Clinic,

First off let me say how wonderful this site is -- thank you! I have scleroderma and have been helped tremendously by Ted's advice here, H202 taken orally and also inhalation methods have done wonders for me.

I also have psoriasis, and started borax at 1/8 tsp in 1 liter of water per day. After day 9, today, I still have absolutely no reaction to the borax, neither positive nor negative.

I was wondering if this is normal? Is the dosage too low?

Thank you for your help!!

I've been using 20 Mule Team Borax for a week now with 500mg of Magnesium and I'm almost fully psoriasis free. Dose 1 tsp of Borax in one liter of water to make a concentrate. Then take only 2 tsp of the concentrate and mix it into a glass of water. Drink that with food. I do it at breakfast. Be sure to take a 500 mg magnesium pill with it also, or the Borax WILL NOT activate. Borax alone will do nothing for psoriasis. You have to have the magnesium with it. Hope this works better for you. It's working for me. I'm actually stunned that I've had this stupid psoriasis all these years and it was such a simple fix. Summer time shorts here I come.

Psoriatic Arthritis

I have had severe psoriatic arthritis for most of my adult life which affected my toes, feet, ankles, knees, hips, lower back, upper back, shoulders, neck, elbows, wrists, hands and fingers. So pretty much everything.

I used the borax remedy frequently posted here and around the web and within three months, I had complete remission and I went from severe joint pain to no joint pain and the effects of the borax would last for months if I stopped taking it and then I would start the borax at the first hint of joint pain and it would go away within two weeks and I would stop the borax again. So that was how I used it.

More recently I did more reading about borax and have decided that instead of stopping borax once the joint pain stops, I will continue using it at the smaller person dose (1/8th teaspoon in a liter of water) instead of the larger person dose (1/4 teaspoon). The reason for this is that borax has other health benefits and in order to get those benefits it will probably be better for me to take borax continuously at the 4 or 5 day a week schedule outlined in the borax remedy.

Borax is purported to work for other forms of arthritis like osteo, rheumatoid and juvenile.

A: Good to hear of your benefits with Borax.

I think it worth noting that the likely culprit in many of the RA and osteoarthritic conditions is chronic mycoplasma infection. In this event, it is best to continue the small dose Borax, limit Arginine rich foods, supplement Lysine, and use any number of natural antibiotic herbs and/or Zapping. The insidious nature of mycoplasma requires this smart & aggressive approach, or it (as you have confessed in your case) just keeps coming back.

Nadine in Wisconsin,

Regarding borax, I still use it at the dose that Ted recommended for men way back when.........1/4 teaspoon dissolved in a liter of water and I take this dose 4 to 5 times per week. I did try to go down to the lower 1/8th teaspoon dose, but it was not effective for me over time so I had to go back to the higher dose.

I am still in remission and have not had any problem that I am aware of after years of borax use.

As far as a mycoplasma issue, I have no idea. I know many people feel that arthritis as well as many other health issues have a mycoplasma as the root cause and I suspect that is absolutely possible, but for me on my own, I don't have any idea how I would go about determining whether that is the case.

I think if I went to my doctor and said please check me for a mycoplasma infection to see if it may be causing my psoriatic arthritis, he would probably laugh me out of his office. So I have no practical way to know for sure if there is a mycoplasma involved or some other type of pathogen.

What I do know for sure and without any doubt at all is that borax works extremely well for me and has done so for years!

Thanks to Ted!!!

I thought that since it has 6 years since I put that post up about borax and psoriatic arthritis (PA), it wouldn't hurt to give an update. I have remained in remission over the past 6 years and I had been in remission for many years prior to that post.

I was in a ton of pain all over as the original post explains and I have remained symptom free for well over 12 years at a cost of less than a penny a day using Borax. No apparent side effects that I have found through the many years of use. I'm still using Borax 4 to 5 days a week and remain pain free from PA.

I read a variety of published information and studies about potential health benefits of boron supplementation and safety of dosage. I found these to be useful summaries:
___

http://www.health-science-spirit.com/borax.htm
Excerpt from Walter Last. The Borax Conspiracy — How the Arthritis Cure has been stopped. 2011.

“Boron is distributed throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, followed by bones and dental enamel. It is essential for healthy bone and joint function, regulating the absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus through its influence on the parathyroid glands. With this boron is for the parathyroids what iodine is for the thyroid.

Boron deficiency causes the parathyroids to become overactive, releasing too much parathyroid hormone which raises the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from bones and teeth. This then leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay. With advancing age high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries; arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. Boron deficiency combined with magnesium deficiency is especially damaging to the bones and teeth.

Boron affects the metabolism of steroid hormones, and especially of sex hormones. It increases low testosterone levels in men and oestrogen levels in menopausal women. It also has a role in converting vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing calcium uptake and deposition into bone and teeth rather than causing soft tissue to calcify. Also other beneficial effects have been reported such as improvement of heart problems, vision, psoriasis, balance, memory and cognition.”

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4712861/
Excerpt from Lara Pizzorno, MDiv, MA, LMT. Nothing Boring About Boron. IMCJ Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal. 2015 Aug; 14(4): 35–48.

“Boron has been proven to be an important trace mineral because it (1) is essential for the growth and maintenance of bone; (2) greatly improves wound healing; (3) beneficially impacts the body's use of estrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D; (4) boosts magnesium absorption; (5) reduces levels of inflammatory biomarkers, such as hs-CRP and TNF-α; (6) raises levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as SOD, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase; (7) protects against pesticide-induced oxidative stress and heavy-metal toxicity; (8) improves brain electrical activity, cognitive performance, and short-term memory in elders; (9) influences the formation and activity of key biomolecules, such as SAM-e and NAD+; (10) has demonstrated preventive and therapeutic effects in a number of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, and lung cancers and multiple and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; and (11) may help ameliorate the adverse effects of traditional chemotherapeutic agents.”
___

Borax is an compound of boron. Borax (sodium borate) is a natural mineral mined from the earth like salt (sodium chloride), both of which have a long history of being used to preserve food. I read that borax and salt are generally considered safe in small amounts and of similar toxicity (LD50) in large amounts.
California is home to one of the world's largest borax deposits from which 20 Mule Team Borax has been manufactured since 1891. The product is packaged in its pure form, with no chemical additives. The only processing it receives after its removal from the ground is washing, drying and packaging. The product is 99.5 percent pure, with the remaining 1/2 of 1 percent containing naturally occurring trace minerals, with no risk of heavy metals. I read that pharmaceutical grade borax is not noticeably purer or better.

I wash my hands after handling borax powder and am careful not to get it in eyes. To make a borax solution, I add one US teaspoon (leveled-off, average 4620 mg on my Weighmax CT20 milligram scale) of borax powder and 16 US fluid ounces of purified water into a cooking pot. I heat on the stove until the solution boils for one minute, and stir until the borax is fully dissolved. I pour the solution into a labeled glass jar with lid and store in a dark location at room temperature.

4620 mg borax powder * 0.113 (11.3% boron by weight) = 522.1 mg boron, divided by 64 (number of 1/2 US tablespoons in 16 US fluid ounces water) = 8 mg boron

A 1/2 US tablespoon of this solution with 8 mg boron is comparable to the estimated 5–8 mg/day boron intake for people in parts of the world such as Israel and Western Australia which have high boron levels in the soil and water (and very low rates of arthritis at 1% or less). This amount is well under the Upper Tolerable Limit (UL) of 20 mg/day boron, determined unlikely to cause any adverse effects for healthy people in long term use.

It cleared for many months and came back after I got extremely stress form the death of a family member.

Re: the borax page. Could you update with information on the time period involved? ie how long is it safe or recommended to take the borax & h202 in water cure?

I have a sore recurring (monthly) rash on my abs and neck. When taking the borax and h202 remedy for about 6 weeks, the rash was rapidly reducing over a few months in total, to the point of thinking that it had gone. But then it came back with full force. I'll try again, but how long is safe?

With thanks.

I started to get skin rashes around my neck that started to spread down my trunk. Nothing work until I switched to Borax shampooing and for washing my body. With three or four days, the rash that had gotten slowly worse for a year was gone--and it has never came back. I used to mix it in water, but I've started just putting it on straight. No only is my rash gone, but it cured my dandruf and my hair is healtheir and thicker than it has been for years. I've been using it for about a year now, and I'll be using it until the day I die.

As far as I know it is the "20 Mule Team Borax" (safe to ingest, right?) but I just can't find it anywhere. I can order from the US but it is going to be really expensive. Can anyone help me please? I am desperate.

Borax in Japanese is called hosha. (Many Japanese don't know how to read the character for this, but it's HO-U in katakana and sha is the kanji for sand (suna). The cost at Amazon is 924 yen for 500 grams.

Or...you can go to http://www.tougeishop.com/item/tougei_genryou/t0804/t0804034.htm and order 1 kg for 609 yen. It seems to be the same thing, and you can use it for washing clothes, washing your hair, etc. But for consumption, probably the type from Amazon would be better. Good luck!

EC: Sorry, our database doesn't currently accept Japanese characters! Will see if we can in the future.

My wife has a very bad reaction to an antibiotic and has broken out in a rash that looks as if she has be scalded. Will a borax treatment in her bath help to cure it and stop the itching?

Sorry to hear of your wife's skin problems. Most likely, it is the liver throwing the poisonous substances out through the skin.

Borax has a very drying after effect and is good for some skin ailments. But in this case I would make chamomile tea, soak cotton face cloths and cover the affected areas. You can also make enough for a bath. This extremely soothing and healing and can be repeated a few times.

After dabbing dry, apply coconut oil liberally where needed. Coconut oil is cooling and soothing, too. Meanwhile Milk Thistle internally three times a day to help clear the liver, and stay away from antibiotics. The word antibiotic means "anti life". It must be done with God's pharmacy.

Let us know how it goes. Namaste Om

In Nov. 2013, took a sulpha based antibiotic, due to cellulitis diagnosis, ended up w/reaction, that looked like steven johnson syndrome, mixture of rash w/a burn. Reaction continued for weeks, finally went to dermatologist, did biopsy, confirmed, drug reaction rash, only thing is given topical steroids, and strong benydryl. I initially used steroids but as soon as I stopped the rash would return, from what I read common cycle so I decided to look for other remedies.

I took some advice from Tony Pantelleresco, he suggested this bath:

1/4 cup borax, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup tri-sodium phospahte(TSP)in stores they are labeling products as TSP but it is not, be sure to read label and if in doubt call the makers of product to confirm it is pure Tri sodium phosphate, as much epsom salt as I wanted, also add some Dmso(start small, cap full or two, and increase to your comfort level), some iodine(pottasium iodide) as hot as I could stand it. as long as I could take it. I did these baths to begin with 2x's a day, when infection was at worst. this is the only thing that brought relief.

if no TSP, just do what u have available

Before I started baths, I asked Drs. if they thought baths would be ok, both drs. thought hot water would not be good, dry out skin..

I would experiment w/different ingredients w/time in bath, ACV, urine, as time went on.

I decided to work on my digestive flora, drank kefir daily(homegrown), increased all b supplement b50, b12, biotin, juiced carrots, read teds suggestions for Steven Johnson Syndrome (SJS). Acupucture, read book by Joe Dispenza, on You are the Placebo, Making the Mind Matter, this helped.

5 months skin clear but returned on arms 1 month after, then did hot & cold baths on arms and continued full salt baths 2-4 x's a week.

Also decided to stay away from grains, and sugar. I always kept looking read what ted says and be willing to experiment to figure what works for you.

As of today, I am clear of rash

Maybe your reaction is not as bad as mine, which was all over the front of my body, even spread to my face. these are some of the things that really helped me.

I know it is hard but you will get better, just keep looking for what works for you. You will get better.

Hi Grace, I am curious, back in Nov. 2013, when you took the sulpha based antibiotic, did you also take any oral corticosteroids around the same time?

Yes, on seeing 1st dermatologist, initially thought was a allergy gave me prednisone for what was thought to be a skin allergy. I was on that for 2 days, when my arm swelled up to size of thigh and was weeping a yellowish liquid, on third night went to ER, diagnosed w/cellulitis, given two antibiotics(MRSA fear) one was Sulph base antibiotic, by 3rd day on antibiotics went to see primary physician, immediatly diagnosed as drug reaction, severe, took me off all drugs including prednisone, was on prednisone for a total of 6 days.

I had a very bad experience with 20 mule team Borax. I was taking it to chelate fluoride and other heavy metals out of my system. I got terrible peripheral neuropathy from Cipro. I got splotches on my forehead. Blurred vision, headaches, and terribly constipated and my BP went up likely from the stress of it all. When I went off everything it I got rid of it all. I was taking 1/4 teaspoon in a liter of water. I even dropped it to 1/8th of a teaspoon and still had problems. And I do take Lugols at 50 mgs/day. Has anyone tried Mesenchyne?

Cipro has fluoride. I just went through a bad episode since I have hypothyroid, I ended up with all thyroid symptoms worst, it has been two months and still having problems.

Hi Nho...Fluoride will also deplete iodine in your thyroid so, as you say, you are probably hypothyroid as well. So if I were in your situation I would start taking the full Iodine Protocol(together with all advised minerals and vitamins) to immediately improve and normalize the thyroid. Supplementing the Iodine Protocol will also help to automatically remove any excess fluoride in your body(from the Cipro) in the same way as borax can. The borax protocol is shown here.

Is it possible the iodine could raise your blood pressure? I was using Ponaris nasal emollient on advice of my ENT and while it made breathing possible and reduced mucus production, it seemed to raise my blood pressure. Once off, no more problems. It does contain iodine. I suppose it depends on the condition of your thyroid (?)

Look up angioedema. It is a reaction to meds and it does indeed act like a burn.

Please be careful with DMSO as it will carry anything it combines with into the blood stream. One drop on your finger & you will immediately taste it. Liquid potassium iodine at 2-drops is 100% RDA, please research effects, dosage, etc.

Be well.

For those of you reading this, a loud loud blast of a warning from a big red firetruck about Prednisone. I am personally familiar with this nightmare drug, as I watched it destroy my mother-in-law. Like many, many women in the western societies, she doted in doctors ad nauseum and literally became a human guinea for treatments of a viral lung infection called Sarcloidsis, easily mitigated by nutrition, in particular by consuming fresh fruits and vegetables which she did not.

One day we went to visit her and she has swelled to monstrous proportions after taking Prednisone. I was shocked. I did the research on the drug and found it caused the swelling and half a dozen other severe side effects including congestive heart failure. I warned her how dangerous this drug was but she continued to take it until she died a few months later at the young age of 44.

Truth is impossible to suppress and liars, being cowards, will always tell it if you watch and listen closely enough by the use of euphemisms and misleading deflections. So it is no surprise that NOWHERE in most medical language does the word heal or the word cure, both very definitive four letter words find their way into print. As such:

1. Your doctor "practices" MEDICINE!!!!

2. Your doctor "treats" SYMPTOMS.

3. Your doctor "prescribes" MEDICATION.

4. You have to be "patient" while being "practiced" on by somebody who is not interested in healing you or curing your "dis-ease". Not to mention that anybody who practices anything doesn't have mastery over their chosen profession.

Fast Forwarding decades, I have lost two younger siblings who also bought into the hype of the medical establishment, refused to exercise their God given intellect to research and died by doctor as a consequence.

And while I'm ranting let me warn everyone that the popularity of coconut oil has skyrocketed its price within this last year at the retail level. Another ruse to deny health and wellbeing to all. May God have mercy on us. Because the worst disease of all is mass murdering humanity. Greed and ignorance remain our most powerful enemies. Thank The Creator of all For EarthClinic.

This happened to a friend, same illness, she did not die so quickly. She did try to wean off the prednisone but then couldn't breath. She puffed up so much she was barely recognizable, then her bones disintegrated, she lost over a foot in height, all her teeth crumbled away, and she was in constant severe pain for a couple years. Horrible way to live and die.
